Airshow Events

The Aviation Magazine reviews of events are published on this website and selected ones in the magazine. Each review has a selection of photographs to illustrate the event. The reviews go back for several years and they evolved into new formats over the years.

In mid 2014 we changed our name from to The Aviation Magazine, which reflects more accurately what we actually cover, not just air shows, but military exercises, base visits, and other related aviation interests. We also revised how the event images displayed with a gallery.

In April 2015 we revised the overall look of the site to make it more smart phone friendly, and while most of our pages are now, the older reviews after our name change cannot be reformatted.


Reviews are chronological order, with the latest being on top. To read selected older reviews from the years gone by click on the appropriate year. We are not showing all the events we attended, due to the fact it would just take much work to update all of them.
